City Hall is Moving

The first phase of the Municipal Facilities project is nearing completion.  The last day of City Hall operations in the current building will be Friday, November 9.  Those operations will be moved into the new City Hall building over the following weekend, including the Veterans Day holiday on Monday November 12.  The new City Hall will be open on Tuesday, November 13 at 1:00 p.m.  Services moving into the new City Hall building are Utility Billing, Permitting, City Clerk, Development Services, Finance, Human Resources, and City Manager’s Office.  

The first City Council meeting in the new City Hall will be the regular meeting of December 3. There will be a short ribbon cutting ceremony and reception before the meeting.  The public is welcome to attend.

Please stop by and check out the new building.  The physical address remains unchanged: 7008 South Rice Avenue.  Enter the new City Hall at the South Rice Avenue entrance.

The new Police and Courts Building will open in January 2019.  Until then, Police and Courts will remain in the temporary location at the current City Hall.  Communications (dispatch) is still located at the Fire Station on Jessamine and is available for 24 hour service. 

Next steps in the Municipal Facilities project include the demolition of the current City Hall building and the beginning of the construction of the new Civic Center, which is expected to be complete in the summer of 2019.  These activities will impact parking, please look for Notify Me messages for more information.

Flooded Street

Flooding in Bellaire...What's Being Done?

Flood control has been a priority for the City of Bellaire for many years.  This focus has been heightened the past year, and each significant rain storm, such as what we experienced on Halloween, generates more questions about what the City of Bellaire is doing to protect citizens from flooding. These efforts include everything from street and drainage improvements to enforcing building codes to participating in interlocal projects with organizations like City of Houston, TXDot and Harris County.  Please check out this summary at the link provided below.  

If you have any additional questions on the City's efforts to help mitigate flooding in Bellaire, please do not hesitate to call us at 713-662-8222.
